I'm happy! first books: thoughts with pictures
I just received the first two books I sent to Blurb.
Overall I’m happy with the results. I have a few things to offer in way of a critique.
First if you’d like to see some images of the books themselves you may look here,
First I found the packing to be well done. The box would have to get crushed for anything to happen to the books.
I used no ICC profiles on purpose for the first printing. I wanted to see how the printer handled my files with no help from me. Some of them came from lightroom, and some of them came from photoshop. I had a mix of color, and black and whites I had toned in photoshop using the color sliders. I was really happy with the overall color. Especially in the toned black and white shots.
Overall I’m real happy with the printing Blurb has achieved. I’ll be producing some more books and will begin promoting the two books I’ve created already.

I’m pleased for you Jonathan, thanks for reporting your findings.
Congratulations on your book project and the book in itself.
Your book looks great! Thanks for sharing your pictures and thoughts on the final product.
My favorite pics, though, were of your cute cat playing with the package wrappings. Thanks for including those, too. *g*
thanks guys =)
I plan on making a book about my two cats, I’m sure it will be a best seller :-P
